Good. Heroine wants to avenge her seduced sisters suicide. Hero is haunted by his deceased wifes paramours.
I lovedd this book Sophy could do no wrong in my eyes. It was pleasure to watch Julian fall in love with her.
The Earl of Ravenwood has asked for country-bred Sophy Dorring's hand in marriage. The Earl is looking for a compliant bride to bear his children. But Sophy hesitates to accept Julian, not because of the mysterious death of his first wife, but because Julian doesn't love her. Then Sophy comes up with a plan. Marry Julian and teach him to trust and love again. Of course, things don't go as planned. Soon Sophy is entangled in a blackmail plot and challenging Julian's former mistress to a duel at dawn.
This is another entertaining historical romance from Amanda Quick. I liked the witty dialogue and the strong heroine. And, I was glad that Julian came to regret not sticking to the agreement he had made with Sophy before their marriage. My rating: 4 Stars.
